Sack Novellino. Call up Zeman. Release a press statement saying, bluntly; "Juve merda, Juve Juve meeerdaaaaaaa".

Not necessarily in the order here specified.

Sack Novellino, but not Zeman. I like him a good deal, but right now I would rather have us play ugly football and win rather than play beautiful football and get relegated. A 1-0 win does us some good, a 4-3 loss does absolutely nothing. I'd say Colantuono.

Though I read in Gianluca Vialli's book that in Italy managers can't go to two different teams in the same campaign. I never knew this before, does this still hold true?

Technically, yes. But there are ways to get around it if the team REALLY wants a particular coach. They can be given another title, that's how Roma did it with Liedholm back in 97 when he held us up. He was too old to have a coaching license if memory serves, so he was made 'technical director' or whatever. Doria did it with Platt too a few years later.

But it's a hassle so I propose once again Zeman .

How positively grand...his version of football, his 4-4-2, is quite possibly the most boring thing in existance.

Zeman's specialty is relegating Serie A teams to B in with an exciting rollercoaster fun that at the ends turns horribly sour.

Novellino just...Lets just mention the only positive of he has specialized in promoting Serie B teams to A (4 times I think).

One time makes him a specialist? I count lecce in 2006, that's it (a team whose players sold their own games, FYI, so I don't know how much we can blame him).

Other than that never relegated, but did come in second with lazio once. That's an achievement akin to winning lo scudetto, Champions, the premiership, copa libertadores AND la liga with a team like Milan or Inter. Throw in a world cup too!

But otherwise been quite the failure in his career except Lazio and Foggia (bit of a hit and miss) No team is willing to hire him since he took over Brescia two years ago when they were flying high mid season, to dropping dead fanstically with him


Btw, do you know dear Zdenek is a Juventino? I wouldnt recommend Toro fans to be coached by one

Brescia was a mistake. In 25 years he had never before taken over a team midseason, because he knows perfectly well he needs months to hammer in his style into players. I guess he figured beggars can't be choosers and he needed/wanted the work so compromised on his previous stance.

But don't forget Roma, O. He was great for us, finshing higher with worse material than a certain Mr. Hat did directly afterwards, while playing amazing football. Then the system killed him and he was relegated to working for minnows...ugly, ugly stuff that went on at that time.

I wouldn't mind him if he came at the start of the season, but in the situation we are now it would be too risky to hire him. Right now safety is the key word.

Btw, when that same giuve fan is the posterboy for all things anti-juve, it doesn't matter . If we and lazio could live with it, I think Toro can too.

But Zeman aside, who else is there? Colantuono, as naervod said. No shame in being fired by Zamparini, he's a good coach. But more? I thought Simoni was good way back when, but don't know at all how he's been the past five years or if he's even coaching still. I like Beretta of Siena...he went completely under my radar until I saw him in a tv interview, really in-depth stuff, and he made a great impression on me. The way he could talk about, and explain, both tactical problems and phychological ones so that the information is accessible was great to her. From Siena to Toro is a great climb upwards so I'm sure he'd be willing to move.

Admit it, you are just easily impressed by Beretta (puns galore with that name ) because he competes with Prandelli in looking stylish as hell

I think Prandelli's taken a strange detour on the road to looking stylish, that one jacket he wore 24/7 earlier (bet he wore it to bed too, and in the shower. quality jacket in that sense) was just not on. Beretta beats him hands down already, competition's over:


But nah, Beretta seems to have a lot of potential to me, not only in fashion and general Clooney-esque coolness .
